I weighed in on Monday. I'd lost three pounds. Pretty exciting, huh? Twelve to go.
I'm doing the Jillian Michaels 30-day Shred workout level 1. I do it everyday but Sunday. To make up for it this past week, I walked home from church. It's about a mile.
I'm no longer sore when I do the workout, but I was for the first four days or so. I struggle more with the aerobic endurance stuff than the weights and other exercises. I'm thinking I'll switch to level 2 on Saturday. I did a quick preview of it this morning. It doesn't look all that much harder than what level 1 requires.
As far as points go, I slacked for two days this past week--Saturday and Sunday. I mean "slacked" in regard to counting points. I was still very aware of what was going into my body and was careful, but I didn't take the time to write them down. That's a pretty dangerous thing to do this early in the game.
My three pound loss put me down one more point. I'm now at 21. I went back to Wendie's and recalculated my points per day.

I think in this case, Wendie's plan saved me. What Wendie's does is it takes your regular point allowance and takes the additional 35 points you're given per week and divides them amongst the other days of the week. When I set up on Wendie's, I chose Saturday as my big point day. I get something like 36 points on that day alone, so last night I simply took all of the points that I shouldn't have eaten yesterday (anything over 23) and subtracted them from Saturday's planned points. Does that make sense? Because I had eaten them already yesterday, those points will not be eaten on Saturday. I think it took me down to 25 for Saturday. Yikes! That's some serious over eating. Darned muffin! But, it was delicious.
So, how are you doing? Any great workouts you're doing? Challenges?
